Colombia's gold from jungles to Swiss watches

Thursday, September 3, 2015

Colombia’s gold is almost exclusively exported to the United States and Switzerland. This gold is mined both legally and illegally, then sold to exporters in Medellin before being sent to North America and Europe.

The country exported 310 metric tons of gold between 2010 and 2014. Curiously, this is more than the government’s production figure of 287 metric tons.
